I have been to Zinna's Bistro in Cranbury NJ about Four Times. The food is pretty Good since I'm a picky eater. Inside does have a sit down dining area. Very beautiful how the restaurant is set up. . The Staff very nice and professional. The food is cooked fresh so the wait might be a little long. But If... More

Enjoyed having lunch as well as dinner once before and just recently tried their signature salad for lunch -- it was light yet satisfying! Much on their menu that I'd like to try!

Thank you for stopping by on multiple occasions, Jay! The signature salad has been on our menu since day one when we opened over six years ago. It is incredibly popular, and we are happy you enjoyed it. We hope you come again soon and try something else on the menu. More

Tucked around the corner off Route 130 north, Zinna's is more than worth the effort to track down. Comfortable inside or outside on the patio, you'll enjoy great food and exceptionally friendly service. If you go with a sandwich or a burger, choose fries as a side - big and crispy. But whatever you order, make sure to get the... More

Service was very good! I was short on time and need to be out in 25 mins. My salad was good but not great. Though for what I needed it worked.

We visited Zinnas with a group of friends for the first time. Upon entering the restaurant we were very impressed with the decor. It was a very nice dining atmosphere. The food on the other hand was very disappointing. I will also begin by saying that our group is not especially picky. As long as the food is tasty and... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide honest feedback. I sincerely apologize that your dining experience with us was not up to par. It is truly disappointing and unacceptable that a raw pork chop made its way to your table. This has been shared with the kitchen manager as well as the owner. More

We ate there after a sad family function, and the atmosphere was soothing. The wait staff was great. The only thing lacking was the food. Everything was rushed and not prepared properly from the salads to the main course. Vegetables and pasta were undercooked while the main course chicken was dry and stacked on top of potatoes that would have... More

This is the type of restaurant I always enjoyed with my family. I recently stopped in for a catch-up evening with an old friend and we lingered for a few hours over delicious food. I had the Braciole which I believe was on the special Menu, and couldn't have enjoyed it more. Tender, flavorful, perfectly portioned. And my friend had... More
